Default Feeding in information from a MS Access database

Hello all,

I'm currently building a new Flash site for <http://www.buona.com/> on behalf of one and my affiliates. Most of it is fairly straightforward. However, please take a look at this page <http://www.buona.com/catering/expresscatering/menu.asp>. The information on this page is fed in from an MS Access database using ASP. The client enters the information via his own content management system. He wants to keep using this database system - is there an easy(ish) way to feed this dynamic information into a Flash page. I have some limited previous experience with PHP / MySQL but very little with ASP / MS Access so any advice would be appreciated. This project is still very much at the drawing board stage at present.

All you would need is loadVars() in flash, and know how to use Response.Write in ASP. Its a lot easier than it seems. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask.
